What to Eat and See in Singapore?

December in Singapore is still extremely hot not like winter at all but still like a summer.  Even thought all the malls along the Orchard road are decorated with Christmas Theme lights and details, you still feel super HOT. I combined all the travel stories whenever I visited Singapore to share with you.

位於熱帶地區的新加坡,儘管晚上烏節路上充滿著聖誕燈飾的氣氛,12月依然是炎熱的天氣,如同在澳洲過夏天的聖誕節是一樣的感覺。

 

 

入新年的倒數階段,飛行約4小時,有幸再度來到這個垂懸於馬來半島最尾端,昔日只是個小漁村,如今在國際舞台表現耀眼的新加坡(Singapore)

對於新加坡的印象,純屬於當時最紅的偶像劇「我可能不會愛妳」,劇中溫柔體貼的大仁哥擄獲多少千萬少女的芳心,大家都要來新加坡尋找大仁哥的蹤跡。

新加坡的氣候屬於熱帶性氣候,四季如夏,只有11月至翌年2月為雨季,來這裡基本上穿著短袖並記得防曬就可以出門。

很開心這次終於有很多同事一起同行,感謝Grace姐的朋友,知道我們難得來新加坡,以專業導遊的身份帶我們在最短的時間內,「吃、喝、玩、樂」新加坡的著名景點。

Orchard road

 

 

Oh! It’s CHRISTMAS TREE from TIFFANY&CO. ‘s gift box! December in Singapore is still extremely hot not like winter at all but still like summer.  Even thought all the malls along the Orchard road are decorated with Christmas Theme lights and details, you still feel super HOT.

Thanks to this job so that I could enjoy the christmas atmosphere in different countries and escape the cold weather! What’s the next? I’m not going to tell you right now.

It’s so excited not to meet my friend Talia who was my classmate in the airlines since she got married and moved to Singapore for a long time. In addition, one classmate Grace was right there with another flight. Seriously, it’s really amazing to meet these two pretty friends together, I mean, the classmates in the same place in a foreign country!

天啊!是蒂芬妮禮盒包裝的聖誕樹!

位於熱帶地區的新加坡,儘管晚上烏節路上充滿著聖誕燈飾的氣氛,12月依然是炎熱的天氣,如同在澳洲過夏天的聖誕節是一樣的感覺。感謝這工作讓我在12月體驗了不同國家的聖誕氣息,短暫避開台灣的寒冬,雖然睡眠嚴重不足,一切值得。

 

—記得第一次來新加坡—

當時懵懵懂懂跟著大家的屁股走,什麼也不太記得,但是!!

烏節路 (WuJie Road)上的路邊攤賣的雪糕夾心餅乾 Ice-cream with Cookies,一個1元新幣,阿姨將雪糕磚塊切成一片一片,再用兩片夾心酥或是餅乾、吐司裡面固定住,真的是難忘的好滋味。

附近還有可愛的查理布朗咖啡館,如果你是史奴比迷也可以在餐廳裡坐一下。

 

Arteastiq Boutique Tea House

 

 

Talia recommended us to have a special tea time in Arteastiq. The name of the Arteastiq is so creative which is a portmanteau of ARTand TEA and ARTISTIC. (Just like my Blog name Gwanmia.  How interesting to see there’s a cool painting studio next to the restaurant. An art jam studio offering a therapeutic experience of canvas expression and gourmet tea sipping while engaging with the artistic side.

I didn’t expect we would be in such a fancy restaurant before I came. I just bought a black Top and the Bottom by random but thanks God they can be dressed as a formal outfit. Arteastiq Boutique Tea House is located in heart of Orchard, famous for its critically acclaimed tea & savouries and all-day Breakfast & Brunch.

We ordered a Premium Tea Lounge and Red Date Tea, French Rose Tea and Lychee Tea. The premium tea lounge has an elegant chi-chi ambience with a comprehensive medley of artisanal tea selections for all occasions. We talked about the life, work and the traveling… from the afternoon to the night. Time seemed not enough for girls to talk. I wish I could have a happy life like her in the future. It’s so magical to walk abound on the Orchard road with Christmas lights but we had to say good bye to the lovely friend because we had to save the energy for the next working day. I really recommend you to come here!

 

新加坡的下午時光,謝謝美麗的朋友Talia抽空帶我和Grace來到這間充滿藝術氣息的下午茶餐廳 Arteastiq Boutique Tea House,我稱它為藝術家的貴婦下午茶。位在烏節路上的Maradin Galley裡,餐廳內的設計非常有藝術氣息,隔壁是一間很酷的畫室,邊畫畫可以啜飲美味的茶品。

Arteastiq內的裝潢充滿高雅和諧的氣氛,除了當地人之外,也是不少西方人和朋友吃早午餐和下午茶的絕佳地點,出發前不知道這裡是高檔的地段,幸好隨手從衣櫥裡帶來的衣服在餐廳內用餐不會顯得太過隨性,很開心這次終於踏出吃路邊美食街的行程,

我們點了英式下午茶組,各自點了法式玫瑰茶、荔枝茶和紅棗茶。Arteastiq的命名是由ARTand TEA 組成,唸起來像ARTISTIC。現在很流行英文的自創組合字,我的部落格Gwanmia命名也是組合字而成 。

這次沒有花太多時間拍照以及研究下午茶有多美味好吃,因為同學們彼此難得見面,都很專心在對方的談話上。沒錯,人是要越來越進步的,喜歡聽朋友說話很有自信充滿深度的模樣,也從她身上學到好多,希望未來也像她一樣少了翅膀,生活依然很美好。

 

魚尾獅公園 Merlion Park

 

 

Last time I shared with you what to eat and what to see in Singapore. Those “Super Trees” made me feel like in the alien planet. This time I didn’t do too much as “Tourist Must Do” except visiting the Merlion Park. I came here again just because last time it was a cloudy afternoon and I couldn’t get a satisfied solo picture. But this time, wow! So happy to be in front of the Merlion with a sunny day to make my small wish come true.

Even though it’s about to Autumn, the weather here changes only a little bit, always like a hot summer every time when I came here. This time, I met my friend who is an awesome girl form Taiwan working in Singapore Airlines and lives here for almost 5 years. It’s quite a long time not to see her and so happy to hear she is going to get married and will move to London next year.

How lovely to know a girl who loves traveling and freedom so much but with a kind heart and soul. When she was single during the past years, she always stayed positive, kept traveling and made friends around the world. She didn’t waste the time to improve herself because she knew the happiness would eventually come. The perfect time is worth to wait and the perfect one finally came to her life. Those stories made me cried. So happy for her and wish her all the best in the future!

Since Uber stared to be popular, it becomes a very convenient  transportation when I am in the foreign countries. Of course, you can use the other cheaper way taking the Subway to the Raffles Place and go upstair and straight to the entry H.

You will see The Fullerton Hotel first, and the opposite side is the Merlion Park.  People, I mean the tourists used all kind of poses to get close to the Merlion. Someone pretend to wash their their hairs or open their mouths drinking the water …etc. It looked so funny if you were in person there. Did I do the same poses as they did? Of course, but I would like to keep those funny photos as my little secrets.

傳說在14世紀時,蘇門答臘的王子乘船外出,途中經過一座島嶼,無意發現一頭奇怪的動物,梵語「Singa」也就是「獅子」的意思。王子深信這是個好兆頭,於是開始興建這座城市,而「城市」的梵語是「Pura」,於是新加坡「Singapore」由此誕生。

我們從萊佛士坊地鐵站H出口往上走,沿著河畔右邊就是浮爾頓酒店(The Fullerton Hotel),是早期的郵政總局改裝而成,四周環繞著希臘式圓柱,充滿新古典主義的風格。

自從Uber開始流行之後,如果人在交通不便的地方,這就成為我在國外的交通首選,而且新加坡的Uber系統非常方便且共乘的價格很公道。當然,到魚尾獅公園(Merlion Park)還有另一種更省錢的方式,可以搭地鐵從萊佛士坊地鐵站H出口往上走,沿著河畔右邊就是浮爾頓酒店(The Fullerton Hotel)。

浮爾頓飯店正前方,繼續走便會看到著名景點魚尾獅公園,觀光客無所不用其極,用嘴巴接水或是洗頭各式各樣的pose都有,這些pose我當然也都沒錯過,想看嗎?不讓你們看 (奸笑)。

在新加坡短短一天過得很充實,在飛機上也是。還記得上次來新加坡的時候,我在天空樹之間,彷彿迷失在外太空的星球之中,這次不免俗第一次在豔陽下和魚尾獅拍照,完成內心的小願望。

秋天的季節在新加坡仍然是炎熱的夏天,這裡氣候屬於熱帶性氣候,四季如夏,只有11月至翌年2月為雨季,來這裡基本上穿著短袖並記得防曬就可以出門。

這次見到在新航工作的朋友Angela,她說我很幸運,今天來的時候遇到大晴天,不然前幾天新加坡都是陰天下雨的狀態。最重要的是,很開心聽到她要結婚的好消息,明年幸福嫁去倫敦。

濱海灣金沙 Marina Bay Sands

 

 

Since 2012, Maria Bay Sands Hotel became not only the famous sightseeing spot but the famous symbol in Singapore. Every time when I was along the Maria Bay, I could not take my eyes off this worldwide known building especially during the night. It looks like an art work shinying all the time. If you are a photography addict, you might got lost in this place by taking photos from different sides.

Wish one day I could use my holidays taking the sunbath on the top of this hotel, having an cocktail in the swimming pool and making a day dream as long as I could. Oh! Those are my travel goals in the future.

 

濱海灣金沙(Marina Bay Sands)是傳說中製造奇蹟的綜合娛樂場所,耗資55億美元打造的濱海灣金沙從2010年成為新加坡的著名城市景觀。如「川」字型的三棟建築大樓就是享譽國際的濱海灣金沙酒店(Marina Bay Sands Hotel),充滿現代與衝突視覺美學的新地標,由眾多國際設計師量身訂做而成。

不得不說新加坡真的很厲害,雖然在這裡連台灣的山水都看不到,卻可以在建國未滿50年期間內建設強大的自由貿易港口,並很有效率地建造獨特的人文景觀。

晚上從魚尾獅公園遠眺金沙酒店的燈光真的很厲害,任河一個角度拍攝都可以拍出不一樣的景致。真的希望未來有機會,能夠在金沙酒店的頂樓游泳池內做日光浴,喝杯調酒慵懶地仰望著天空,做場白日夢吧。

新加坡其實不大,很多地方都可以用徒步的方式前進,我們在考巴剎(Lau Pa Sat)熱食中心享用完晚餐後,便從駁船碼頭(Boat Quay)沿著河岸散步著,涼爽的風兒迎面而來,真的有一種度假的感覺。

途中很幸運看見三台紅、藍、黃的藍寶堅尼(Lamborghini)跑車,一開始沒有什麼人停留,車主很友善開車門讓我們拍照,突然圍觀的群眾才越來越多,我們也心滿意足離開。

 

F1 賽事最後一天 Last day of the F1 Event

 

It was the last day of F1 (Formula One) as well so that there were so many fans from all over the world around the The Fullerton Hotel.  Some of the roads were blocked for the competition. Attending F1 is like an honor and a big event for the fans. People were so crazy about the car racing and would like fly to Singapore seeing the games for couple of days.

There were some Ferrari vehicle exhibitions around the The Fullerton Hotel for people taking pictures.  You could also hear the exciting loud noises from the car racing very clearly every single minute. It seemed like you were in the completion area right now!

浮爾頓酒店(The Fullerton Hotel),是早期的郵政總局改裝而成,四周環繞著希臘式圓柱,充滿新古典主義的風格,內部與周圍更有法拉利跑車展示區,當然這些不是賽車的專用車種,僅提供民眾參觀拍照使用。

由於抵達新加坡的這一天是F1賽事的最後一天,浮爾頓酒店(The Fullerton Hotel)周圍仍是轟隆隆的賽車聲,有些道路封鎖僅限觀眾行走,其他車輛都必須要繞道而行。

儘管沒有買票看現場賽車,當然一張票我可能也買不起,光在場地外就可以感受到跑車帥氣拉風的急速聲響,已經感到十分過癮。

 

 

雙螺旋橋 The Helix Bridge

 

 

遠眺如麻花的雙螺旋橋(The Helix Bridge),橋樑入口處是一座Youth Olympic Park,橋尾則通往濱海灣金沙,橋面有五處觀景平台,令人嘖嘖稱奇。

柔和的燈光不斷慢慢變化,彷彿走進未來的時空隧道令人感到驚奇,這是寶門廊(Promenade)

遠方可以眺望到新加坡的摩天觀景輪(Singapore Flyer),到了夜晚彷彿巨型的藍光戒指,意外捕捉到的景色,也好愜意。

  

擎空樹 Supertree    

 

 

最後我們走往濱海南花園(Garden by the Bay- Bay South),擎空樹(Supertree)是新加坡目前最夯的約會景點。藍色的擎空樹矗立在眼前,彷彿置身於阿凡達的奇幻世界。

白天這一帶是植物園,園區內的18顆擎天大樹由鋼筋水泥製成,上頭垂滿熱帶植物,白天有遮陽的效果,到了夜晚則開始燈火通明。

園區入口是一道道的彩色燈泡排列的拱門,呈現出彷彿要進入另一場奇幻的冒險,你準備好了嗎?

走在園區內,我好像來到了另一個星球,每轉一個彎,綠色或紅色的燈光與軌道的變化令人感到不可思議,很像行星的軌道環繞著。白天才能在橋上行走,晚上則禁止通行,應該是怕有任何意外的產生。

這裡真的很適合情侶一起手牽手前來,體驗這不思議的夜晚星球之旅。領一區是聖誕節才有暫置的奇幻國度,真的捨不得離開這裡,待一整個晚上在此放空也願意。

迎接新年前的最後一趟飛行,原本只是想在新加坡隨意吃東西放空就好,幸好有很多好同事一起行動,一起吃了知名的Lady M,還有地陪們一起解說歷史,點了一整桌當地知名的豐盛美食,讓這一整天變得非常充實。

看著夜晚的擎空樹,彷彿置身於另一個星球的奇幻世界,不論如何,新年新希望,希望新的一年能夠越來越好,美夢成真。

 

濱海廣場購物中心 Marina Square Mall

 

1. 紐約蛋糕女王Lady M

新加坡的Lady M蛋糕店在這個Marina Square Mall裡面。

無法親自前往紐約的話,最近的距離就是在新加坡吃Lady M,抹茶口味的千層蛋糕(Green Tea Crêpe)一直是讓我從紐約回來難忘的好滋味。

說實話,吃完紐約總店之後,真的可以針對兩邊的口感做細微的比較,紐約的可麗餅皮是一層一層很Q彈細緻的,蛋糕女王總店實至名歸。新加坡的可麗餅皮比較偏軟黏一點,基本上口感都香甜可口。

2. 優格霜淇淋 Llaollao 

Llaollao這間優格霜淇淋店很有名,連吃個冰都要大排長龍,我們點了原味優格和淋巧克力醬的兩種口味嘗鮮,優格霜淇淋的口感很扎實,是個不錯的飯後甜點,推薦給大家。

3. 新加坡平價精品 Charles & Keith

新加坡品牌Charles & Keith,很多人喜歡來這裡買鞋子和包包。

 

考巴剎熱食中心 Lau Pa Sat Festival Market

 

 

新加坡的熱食中心(food Centre)是平日新加坡人的飲食好去處,新加坡本島腹地雖小,卻有超過125座熱食中心,內部的大排檔更多達一萬六千多攤,比我們台灣的夜市還要厲害,攤位都是經過嚴格衛生管理認證才能進駐的熱炒美食。

位在魚尾獅公園附近的Lau Pa Sat Festival Market(考巴剎),是其中靠近景點區最有名的一個熱食中心,其實滿像我們百貨公司的美食街,變成開放式的露天用餐空間,連找桌子也是要用搶的或是在一旁等待他人用餐完畢。

地陪朋友們非常熱情招待我們,幫大家到各個攤位點了一整桌來新加坡必吃的美食,還好這次一起出遊的人很多,不然一兩個人來也無法吃到這麼豐盛的料理,真的覺得很感恩。

以下是我們點的新加坡道地料理:

 

1.新加坡式的蚵仔煎

2.蛋煎蘿蔔糕(Fried Carrot Cake): 源自廣東潮汕移民的美食,清蒸的菜頭粿切成小塊,加入大蒜、菜脯和雞蛋一起快炒,超美味。

3.黑醬油煎蘿蔔糕: 在新加坡有分黑白蘿蔔糕的煮法,這道很像醬油膏快炒過,吃起來甜甜的。

4.烤雞翅棒棒腿

5.甜螃蟹(Sweet Crab): 應該是「辣螃蟹」去辣,肥美的斯里蘭卡螃蟹與蛋花勾芡的甜醬汁。

6.有白胡椒辣螃蟹黑胡椒辣螃蟹

7.炸饅頭,要配炒螃蟹的醬汁。

8.煎魔鬼魚:真的有點辣。

9.蝦仁炒米粉

10.福建炒麵

11.牛肉和雞肉沙嗲(Satay)。沙嗲醬由椰醬、花生醬和幼蝦醬等調製而成,搭配洋蔥、黃瓜和馬來米飯。

12.最後吃飽來一杯甘蔗汁加檸檬,真的超清爽可口。

 

土司工坊 Toast Box

 

 

來新加坡一直很想念「亞坤」,不過飯店換了新位置只有「吐司工坊」,我點了一份牛油塗上現烤吐司,再搭配一杯熱絲襪奶茶,就是一道簡單的早餐。

新加坡的美食還有很多,儘管停留時間很短,仍然要把握時間並留好肚子大肆品嘗。

 

肉骨茶 Bak Kut Teh

 

附近的舊洋樓拍起來好有味道,繼續走會看見「亞合肉骨茶」,我以為所有的肉骨茶都是中藥熬煮的深色湯頭並搭配麵線。

這間的肉骨茶只有搭配白飯,湯頭很清淡爽口,我滿喜歡的,只是小小一碗要6塊新幣有點心疼,老闆人很好看到我的湯頭見底主動幫我加湯,他說我才有(感動…)。

 

「文東記」海南雞飯 Hainan Chicken Rice

 

接著,我們到了也是有名的「文東記」海南雞飯,可惜到現在還沒有吃過傳說中「天天」的海南雞飯,不過這間也是生意好到超多份外帶準備在門口。

礙於時間有限,我們大家也只能包便當,不得不說雞肉的口感真的很Q彈好吃,推薦給大家。

 

梧槽豆花水 ROCHOR BEANCURD HOUSE

 

這間槽梧豆花冰非常有名,總是大排長龍,我喜歡點上一杯冰豆漿和現煮的花生湯圓配冰豆花。

 

熱食中心 (大排檔) Balestier Market

 

新加坡人很喜歡外食,到處都看得到像美食街一樣的熱食中心,規模介於餐廳與夜市之間,裡面的攤位也是琳瑯滿目,不過都看起來好好吃。

潮州菜的「染菜飯」真的是很奇妙的用語。

 

328 加東叻沙 328 Katong Laksa

 

The last part of what I’ve done in Singapore is about the local delicious food. I’m not the big fan for Laksa, but Angela said this one is not only famous between the tourists. For the locals, they love to visit this restaurant as well.

The ingredients of the spicy cream soup are coconut flavor with a little bit dry shrimps. The thick rice noodles taste awesome with the soup. I usually like to order the food which is not belong to my county when I’m in a foreign country. I try to taste the new one I’ve never eaten before. That’s the funnest way while traveling. Isn’t it?

這是已經住在新加坡多年的Angela推薦我來吃的道地美味叻沙,我其實不是叻沙的愛好者,既然來到了新加坡,總是要品嚐一下在地的美味,這是我在旅行中的堅持,盡量不要吃自己國家內熟悉的食物。

濃郁的奶香搭配辛辣的口感,這就是叻沙的特色,湯頭裡都是椰香和蝦米的東南亞風味,再搭配些許肉片,至於湯裡面放的是主食是粗米粉,長得像米苔目,並沒有米苔目或是烏龍麵的Q軟感,因此口感很奇特,喜歡叻沙的饕客不妨來這裡品嚐道地的好滋味。

 

—百勝叻沙拉麵 Laksa Instant Noodles—

曾經被評比為第一名的泡麵,喜歡叻沙的你們也千萬不能錯過,在超市買一打泡麵伴手禮回家!

 

Love,
